Description: Because of the food safety restrictions, we can no longer offer tours...
Because of the food safety restrictions, we can no longer offer tours through our production area. However we are able to provide a revised tour that includes a presentation of our history and a chocolate experience of how we make chocolate by hand and candy that cannot be made on a machine. You will see and learn how chocolate is tempered and how to make hollows. We also have a video available that shows plant production. Currently our chocolate experience is available Monday thru Thurs at 1pm however with larger groups we may be able to accommodate other times. Also, our Das Sweeten Haus retail store and museum are open most days. The Das Sweeten Haus museum features illustrations of old-time American candy craftsmen. You'll see many special display cases filled with wooden sugar molds, glass candy jars, and many other priceless antiques. You'll also see a video of the Wolfgang candy-making process ... Along with a complete history of the Wolfgang family who made their candy making dream come true in York, PA back in 1921.

Nice and friendly. The girl helped us by answering some questions and gave a brief history of the soda fountain area.

Wolfgangs is truly a York treasure. The candy is very tasty and good prices to boot. It is too bad that they do not give factory tours. Worth a visit if you have a sweet tooth.....😁😁😁 Ann Kroh-Hughes

Stopped off at the Wolfgang store and picked up some great candy. Service was excellent. A little disappointed that they dont do the factory tours anymore. Great place to stop and get great chocolate.

While the store if great they no longer take you to the factory on the tour anymore despite being on the list. They do a small "presentation" now. In the lobby you get a little history (done in a rather cheesy and boring way) then all are crowded into the small shop to peer through a window to see the... More

We are sorry you were disappointed in the experience. Enhanced food safety regulations will not allow for our prior tour experience until or unless we redesign the facility. We've made modifications to our website and to Trip Advisor to alert the public. We hope you enjoyed the candy and are happy you enjoyed the demonstration. More

Went for the chocolate tour and was disappointed to find out they no longer allow you to go through the factory. The tour consist of hearing about the history of the factory while standing in the lobby and then seeing an employ make a hollow chocolate item from a mold.

I liked the factory setting as well as the samples and friendliness of the people who work there. The travel time from the hotel to the factory was pretty good and overall driving experience in York was excellent.

We enjoyed our stop here. Title accurately describes our feelings. Had no idea a lot of their small orders are hand made. The lady who did our tour enjoyed both her job as a tour guide as well as a candy maker. Be sure to stop by the store for lots of goodies.

So it kind of in a bad area and parking is not easy . The tour is really interesting and the kids found it fun . They give you a candy bar at the end , but you really get to see the good and bad of a canary factory. We will likely go do it again .
